Hogstedt...


Totally here for Maria to lay multiple smackdowns on his new pupil and get a new punchbag.

Just finished watching Fed v Del Potro. For me how tennis should be played

No endless grinding rallies

Re: Off Topic....Anything Goes vol5

I want to see a match between Maria and Halep next year, as soon as possible. Girl is a good player but the bandwagon is too much. Hope to see Maria play this new Halep soon.

Re: Off Topic....Anything Goes vol5

I won't start taking Hypelep seriously until she at least takes a set off healthy Maria/Vika next year...the few times I've watched her play, the word "average" was popping up into my mind mostly. Unspectacular and boring too

I don't think you can argue with her results this year.

She might be unspectacular but she hits a very clean and consistent ball. She reminds me of David Ferrer. She can rally with you all day and not in that Wozniacki defensive style but in that sort of ball machine that doesn't miss. She is very tough.

I didn't see "unspectacular" and "boring" while watching her today. I saw someone who is consistent, who is able to hit heavy balls with nice placement, someone who is quick and takes her chances when she sees them. I'd say she's kind of like Kerber, but with a really good serve. But I do want to see how she performs in a high-pressure Slam match, maybe with Maria or Vika in a Round 4-type situation

I've watched her in a few matches only this year, the last of them being in Moscow tournament. I wouldn't call the ball she hits "heavy", at least not the same overpowering ball that true hitters like Maria and Kvitova hit. She's fast though, but so are plenty of other players of her size (Kirilenko, Pennetta and etc). Her biggest issue is her serve, and that's where her limitations are the most obvious - the likes of Maria and Vika will always feed on weak serves and being of such small stature won't help Halep either. But if folks want to claim she will be great, good for them. I'm personally very skeptical about small girls and their chances in today's game, but maybe romanian will prove me wrong and do a Henin someday

Re: Off Topic....Anything Goes vol5

^^ With all my praise of her, I do expect Maria to whip her aside whenever they meet next, so maybe my belief in her isn't that strong

There's talk about speeding up hardcourts again. If and when that happens it won't take more than a few months before fans start complaining about how boring it is to just see aces and unreturnables. Opportunity will knock for John Isner and guys like him though. Tennis fans are a hard crowd to please. In the days of Sampras, Krajicek and Ivanisevic everyone wanted longer rallys. Now that they have longer rallys they want Popeye tennis back.

I think she's pretty Wozniacki-like. Wozniacki too used to be a ball machine who didn't miss when she was at her best. Unspectacular? I don't know. Personally I find the 25 UE per set type of tennis that some prefer not just unspectacular but also embarrassing. It's great to watch when they are on, but more often than not they are not.
